Shortly after 12:00 P.M. on Wednesday, February 27, 2019, Albert Ammon Aldridge, age 68, of Morganton, North Carolina, departed to be with the Lord at St. Joseph Campus in Asheville.

A native of Avery County, North Carolina, Albert was born on September 7, 1950, and was the son of Frances Brandon Aldridge of Nebo; and the late Owen Aldridge. A devoted son and brother, Albert proudly cared for his mother daily. In his younger days, he enjoyed going hunting and fishing.

Left to cherish his memory, in addition to his mother, are two sisters, Linda A. Fincher and Libby Gallion (Terry); nieces, Sandy Meyer (Tracey) and Rebecca Wise (Forrest); and nephews, Todd Fincher (Jennifer) and Jacob Gallion, all of whom he dearly loved and was extremely proud of. He was also survived by ten great-nieces and -nephews.
